I am a journalist from lebanon originally
Wonderful host - showed us around even took us to Camden by car. The room is ok. Recommend.
Ahmad is a natural host. He even did my washing for me. He has lovely placid cats and a wonderful disposition. The house felt authentic and lived in by good people. It's also in a very convenient location.
Joli chambre avec une belle vue dans un quartier proche du centre de Londres (mais il faut tout de même prendre les transports en commun pour s'y rendre). Ahmad est très accueillant et sympathique. Magnifique jardin et très belle petite terrasse accessible depuis la chambre pour les petits déjeuners (en été!).
Good location and a quiet place. Ahmed and John are the perfect host. We really recommend to stay at their home. They make you feel like home!
Ahmad is the perfect host - he insisted on coming to pick us up with our bags from my dad's house, 8 cats welcomed us with rubs and purrs, our room had its own kettle and fridge with tea and coffee, a climb out of the window took us to our private balcony (watch the steps when it's wet though). he gave us coffee and cherries and his very good company, so laid back and accommodating, lent me his oyster card when I left mine at my dad's house, told us all the bus routes and great places to eat (try guzleme, spinach and cheese freshly made from the Turkish cafe just a few steps down Holloway road) minded out bag when we went to Oxford for the night and even dried our wet clothes while we were away - what more can we say - you MUSt like cats - so long as you're ok with that we couldn't recommend this place enough (in fact we already have...)
The house is really nice - located in a very peaceful neighbourhood and quite close from the city centre.
The room was very comfortable and clean and there is a bathroom just for the guests.
Ahmad and John were really nice and helpful - thank you both for welcoming me in your house! - I just need we had more time to discuss together as they seem to have lots of interesting stories to tell.
Sadly we did not get to meet Ahmad. But John is there to welcome us together with the lovely cats. The house is for cat lovers. Those who don't like cats, this is not for you. There are about 4-5 cute lovely cats in the house and it is normal to have cats smell lingers in the house. Anyway, the house with wooden flooring, is nearby to a bustop. 4-5 stops to the tube. From there u can go to the city. Quiet environment. Nice place to relax.
We had a great stay here! The location was as described, and we found the proximity to be useful when coming and going from the tube. Thanks for the comfortable stay!
Unfortunately, Ahmad couldn't be there while we visited but John was a perfect host. He made us feel welcome right away and went out of his way to help us sort out a parking problem, which we really appreciated it.
The room was really nice. Linen, towels, tea, coffee, fridge and various takeout menus were provided, as well as some local informations on transport and food options, so it was perfect. Their home is lovely and very well situated. Their street is nice and quiet but near multiple convenient transport options.
Their cats are very nice and friendly (but only if you want them to).
I would definitely stay there (website hidden): If you're looking for a place to eat, try La Saporita near Finsbury Park. Delicious, genuine, Italian food with perfect service.
We had the best time at Ahmad's place. They were very friendly and we felt very welcome. The room was clean and lovely. We would recommend this place to everyone!
